of those who have been arrested, engaged in or having committed terrorist acts in the united states in the last month were in communication with persons on the internet. they never met the necessarily in person but they were highly influenced by their messaging. i gave a speech about a week ago really defending strongly internet freedom but i also pointed out that the internet is a neutral tool, and increasingly we are having to face, whether it is the u.s., u.k. or yemen, the threats coming from beyond our borders that cannot be, as david said come up ginned on any event in a particular place. it is an accumulation of influences, and i think we have to look more thoughtfully at this and i think there is a role for the free media to play because we need a countermessage to young people, who for whatever reason, seek out these voices of the extremism, and i think that is something that governments need help in doing on both a technological basis and in terms of the media's narrative. >> we will definitely take another question but thank you very much indeed. [laughter] >> on tomorrow
sense of energy that you always have at this time, just before the president of the united states comes in and speaks before the entire u.s. congress. the difference now is that that electricity has a sense of uncertainty in it, a big sense of uncertainty, and anxiety among democrats who didn't think that they would have this much anxiety this early in an election year but i got to tell you, still the overwhelming sense, even more than a week after the election in massachusetts is a sense of shock among democrats, and that is the kind of audience predominantly that the president is going to be facing here. ed was talking about health care. we know that that is in dire straights. all day long democratic leaders trying to figure out how to salvage that and jobs, what everybody wants to hear the president talk about. when it comes to the senate because they don't have that 60-vote majority anymore, we're already hearing that they're trying to scale back that, and maybe from their perspective, call the republicans' bluff a little bit and try to put forward some of the issues that they think
forward, the united states and the international community must assure that investments made in rebuilding haiti are actually carried out through community based organization, faith-based entities, nongovernmental entities and nonprofit organizations. my personal hope is that a new generation of leaders will selflessly lead haiti onto a new path of prosperity, through integrity, hard work, transparency, perseverance and true democracy. thank you. >> thank you, very much, dr. francois. thank you, all of you, for helping lay out the magnitude of the challenge here and put a lot of ideas on the table about things we need to think about. we in the time frame that we have i think if we do seven-minute rounds, then every senator ought to have an opportunity to be able to ask questions. and if we could ask you to sort of keep the answers tight. obviously encompass everything that you want to but we want to here, if we can. on a personal note, let me just say, dr. farmer, speaking as a dad, i want to thank you for the example and the opportunity that you have shown my daughter who i know just valu

[ applause ] >> after a slight false start, the president makes his way down. you can see on your right, majority leader reid of the senate, steny hoyer, majority leader of the house, the handshakes in progress, the tradition as old as not the presidency itself, but the modern presidency, certainly. this speech used to be delivered, essentially, left on the house's doorstep. sometimes i wonder, chris, if that wasn't a better way of doing this. it's such theater. what is it, as we see -- every time we've talked about this, does it have meaning? does it have ceremonial meeting? is this the sliver of monarchy that we like to have in this country? >> well, i think it gets a huge audience on television, keith. and people do want to hear. i remember when president clinton was in office and the pundits would say too much detail.

[cheers and applause] >> i seem to remember coming to tampa two weeks before the election. and you know what i said, this is a quote. people can check. i'm sure it was reported in the newspapers. i said change never comes without a fight. that was true then. it's true now. change never comes without a fight, florida. so i won't stop fighting. i know you won't either. we aren't going to stop fighting to give our kids a world class education, to make college more affordable to make sure that by 2020 we have the highest rate of college attendance than any country in the world. [cheers and applause] >> so we propose that graduates should only pay 10% of their income to pay back their student loans. [cheers and applause] >> and what i have said is we'll forgive student loan after 20 years. but after 10, if you choose a career in public service and if you decide you want to be a teacher, if you decide you want to be a cop, if you're not making huge amounts of money, we don't want to discourage you
spending freeze. >> the president of the united states came to the well of congress and after apparently offering a nod to focusing on jobs, he renewed his embrace of the failed economic policies of this congress and h this administration to date, calling for one more so-called stimulus bill built on the same failed policies of the last stimulus bill. >> warner: for her part, house speaker nancy pelosi focused today on health care reform, something the president moved down his priority list in last night's address. >> we must pass this legislation , and we must take whatever time it takes to do it. some things we can do on the side which may not fit into a bigger plan. that doesn't mean that's a subs tuesday for doing comprehensive. it means we will move on many fronts. >> reporter: the president also drew attention today for his criticism last night of the supreme court's decision on campaign finance. with all nine justices looking on, he charged that the ruling would open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations. associate justice samuel alito shook his head

of that bipartisanship was actually the president of the united states saying picking out easy to identify enemies, say, big banks and say we are going to go and -- go and punish the big banks because nobody likes the big banks and everybody hated the bailouts and even though we had a part in both of those things coming past, we all hate them now and i dare the republicans not to follow me. that kind of bipartisanship in here as well? >> i'm all for that. and i think that the president was also very effective in sort of using railying around the flag-type receiptic to essentially force republicans to plod along saying do we want to be second in the world in energy independence and alternate fuels. do we want to be second in china and europe? of course. nobody wants to be second. especially in this country. i thought that was very effective and i would like to see more of in a and more of the populist talks. bank bashing. that will be gold in 2010. we need to see more of that. >> clearly that's it. takeaway from last week in massachusetts is not they elected a republican, ted kennedy's seat was lost. th

[cheers and applause] >> the people standing along in many cases have been there a long time to get them and we'll hear the banter for the president and see them interacting and so while we can we'll listen. [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] >> chris, i have heard his demeanor characterized in a number of ways. that is conjectory thing. as we sat down at the table with the president in the white house, he seemed relaxed and took his coat off and invited everybody else to do that. i realize we have had hard times. we hope they might have gone in recent months. to say he was anything less than deflated over the idea of a health care reform loss which clearly he h. the person he gave a warm welcome is tim geithner, the treasury secretary. that interesting, geithner was on capitol hill getting a roasting not only from the republicans in congress but also from the democrats . so he was running the new york fed of the aig, got roasted and some people suggested that he should step down. i don't think i

"i was too busy to tell you?" or does he acknowledge misnakes policy? and i think health care is the 800-pound gorilla in the room that they have to address because it is inconceivable the democrats go into 2010 election, trying to walk away from health care. it would be such a negative and-- not only for the country but for them politically. >> lehrer: you think, david, the president will take on the polarization in the congress, all democrats feel one way on everything , all republic
'll be left behind. this problem is going to get solved, and it should be solved here in the united states. >> joe, realistic assessment. do you believe a cap and trade even after massachusetts and the climate we're in, focus on jobs, can actually pass and get to the president's desk this year? >> you know, listen, i think we sat and are surprised by a lot of things. i think we're going to be working on jobs, but i absolutely believe that it's incredibly important that they deal with this. i think if you come at it in a different way, the way the president did tonight, they'll have a lot more success. >> joe lockhart, tony fratto, rob nichols, anita dunn, thank you. >>> we'll see how the market votes tomorrow, john, but short of any big surprises in your view, that cuts a night for us. >> i think so. i think the markets are likely to see this as a continuation. thanks for joining us. see you tomorrow morning. >>> i'm jim cramer, and welcome to my world. >> you need to get in the game! >> firming are going out of business and they're nuts, nuts, know nothing. >> i like to see there's a bull
. here is a look at the satellite- radar for the eastern united states or for the mid-atlantic. can you see, as we were saying yesterday, awe lot of that precipitation that you see as far as the snow goes, you see how it hits the mountains and doesn't make it over the mountains. that will be more of the same. we do see off the north and east some development of some light precipitation. right now, 36-degree in the nation's capital. relative humidity, 67%. your forecast for today, partly to mostly sunny. we'll see more clouds this morning than we will it the latter part of the day. the winds will pick up 15, 20 miles per hour gusting up to 30, 35 miles per hour but our temperatures quite nice. we are being look for a high of 50 degrees in the district. >> may as well enjoy it today i guess. >> yes, it will get colder. >> we'll enjoy today then. let's check in with julie wright and get an early look at traffic. >> so far, so good. no incidents to report. traffic volume still flowing at speed at the wilson bridge. all lane are open traveling southbound on 95 and 295 out of laurel head down
place for the united states of america. >> i will point out the president and vice president will be in florida today as part of the announcement of $8 billion in recovery act money to go toward developing high speed rail. the president vowing not to abandon his health care overhaul despite the loss in massachusetts last week. a lot of people were sleeping in davos when the president was speaking, but i'm sure feedback is starting to trickle in. maria and ross have all the details from davos. >> hey, brian, good to see you. maria is joining us for the next couple of days. and it was 3:00 in the morning, that state of the union speech. but i know you were up watching it. >> i actually did watch it a little bit. i know you did. >> actually, then they repeated it. the president heard the american people's claims and the issue of putting jobs first. a number of people here are talking about that as well as talking about the possibility of future risks. one thing that keeps coming up is the risk of sovereign debt crises around the world. getting into that more to talk about the u.
the president of the united states. in my 18-year-old twin boys added pressure to me tonight by giving me exactly ten minutes to finish before they leave to go watch "sportscenter." i'm joined by fellow virginians to share a republican perspective on how to best address the challenges facing our nation today. we were encouraged to hear president obama's speak this evening about the need to create jobs. all americans should have the opportunity to find and keep meaningful work and dignity that comes with it. many of us here tonight and many of you watching have family or friends that lost their jobs and, in fact, one in ten americans is unemployed. that is unacceptable. here in virginia, we face our highest unemployment rate in more than 25 years. bringing new jobs and more opportunities to our citizens is the top priority of my administration. good government policies should spur economic growth and strengthen the private sector's ability to create new jobs. we must enact policies that entrepreneur and innovation so america can better compete with the world. what government should not do
and controlled by the united states of america. so it's not that they happened to go into the office and trespass, but the actual act of picking up the phones, going into the phone closet, that was part of the trespass according to prosecutors. >> what happens next in this case? >> next is that there's going to be a hearing february 12, sort of a pretrial hearing. but there's going to be a lot happening behind the scenes. prosecutors are going to talk to each of these men individually and figure out if their stories match up. they're going to try to determine if there was any financial incentive that james o'keefe had, who he may have within in contact with and if they provided a financial incentive. >> david shuster, week dais, 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. eastern is in louisiana covering the story for us now. thank you for doing this story for us tonight. we'll return to tonight's big story out of washington, d.c. that is a ton of pepperoni. ( cracking, crash ) that was delivered fast! it's not delivery and we'd like it back. new digiorno ultimate toppings pepperoni, with 50% more pepperoni. taste.
to take this trial somewhere else. and there are other places to try it in the united states, which are more remote, which are much less a target and would be much less, i think, squatting ground for very unfortunate propaganda all over the world. >> in fact, let me follow up on that. you know, as someone who follows intelligence more closely than anyone in congress, you know that new york is the number one symbolic target of value, long-range value for decades now for al qaeda, at least since the 1993 attack, first attack on the world trade center. >> yes. >> let's just stipulate that new york is always, whether or not there are immediate threats, always has a lot of background noise. where else in the united states could this trial be held or should they revert to military commissions and not hold a civilian trial? >> i'm not going to go into it at this point. i think the dynamic has changed now, and i think that the administration ought to listen to the mayor, listen to the mayor's concern and candidly make a change. there is nothing wrong with making a change. the administration
of the president himself. >> madam speaker, the president of the united states! [ applause ] >> at this point, the so-called escort committee, john, as you well know,ing will lead the president into the chamber. he'll shake hands with members, who as john pointed out not long ago, are very aware of where the cameras are placed. work his way to the center aisle. the president, of course, will begin his speech after being introduced formally. >> hey, joe, since we interrupted you before, let me ask you, were you ever in that scrum around the president? what's it like in that crush of people? >> i was in the ceremonial room, but once he got to the floor, that was too rough for me. i went back to the president himself. that sort of attention getting and affection i don't -- it was a little too dangerous. >> but joe and i were talking a bit about times we've been in the chamber for presidents. i actually have only been in the chamber for president clinton's state of the union address, not any of president bush's. but i think what's clear is it is a special moment when the president does come into

to investment banks. in my judgment the american people and the united states congress have a responsibility to know who got those loans, how much, and what were the terms. we have written to the chairman of the federal reserve board, myself, senator grassley, and eight others, to say, you now have a responsibility to tell us who got that money and what were the terms? his answer to us is i have no intention of telling you. that is not acceptable to me and should not be acceptable to the congressor the american people. and that's -- congress or the american people. that's another reason i will not advance this nomination madam president, i yield the floor and make a point of order that a quorum is not present. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: a senator: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from maryland. mr. cardin: i ask unanimous consent that the quorum call be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. cardin: madam president, i first take this time to talk about former senator charles mack na thrc --mack was a true e best
if they choose a career in public service. because in the united states of america, no one should go broke because they chose to go to college. and by the way it's time for colleges and universities to get serious about cutting their own costs. because they, too, have a responsibility to help solve this problem. now, the price of college to yousition just one of the burdens facing the middle class. that's why last year i asked vice president biden to chair a task force on middle class families. that's why we're nearly doubling the child care tax credit and making it it easier to save for retirement by giving access to every worker a retirement account and expanding the tax credit for those who start a nest egg. that's why we're working to lift the value of a family's single largest investment, their home. the steps we took last year to shore up the housing market have allowed millions of americans to take out new loans and save an average of $1,500 on mortgage payments. this year we will step up refinancing so that homeowners can move in a more -- into more affordable mortgages. and it is
of like everyone is talking about how the united states is slow. you made a very, very pointed comment in your conference call which just finished where you talked about that the u.s. is actually getting stronger. how can you explain the disconnect between what i heard last night in the president's state of the union about how things aren't so strong and all the doom and gloomsteres and your u.s. business is picking up here? >> jim, i think one thing is that technology is leading this recovery. and i don't think that's been true since the tech bubble burst back at the beginning of last decade. so i think there's pent-up demand for technology and we're seeing it. our i.t. business in america grew by double digits on a year on year basis. >> that's why i like tech and i'm going to keep pushing it. roy vallee, great to have you on here. you do have the pulse on this whole industry. thanks so much. those of you crying in your beer about qualcomm thinking it's all over, mr. vallee has a better handle on it than qualcomm who has no handle on it at all. i feel better. technology is leading us
, thank you for being here today. in your testimony you state that in your capacity as united states treasury secretary, you were not involved in any decisions with respect to payments to aig's counterparties. and that you were not involved in any of the decisions concerning aig's disclosure of those payments. i'd like to accept that at face value, mr. paulson, except the critical decisions concerning payments to counterparties were made after the passage of the emergency economic recovery act by congress at your request. and the emergency economic recovery act made the treasury secretary responsible for the use of funds authorized by congress. negotiations on the counterpart of payments by the federal reserve bank of new york, did not begin until november 6, 2008. the funding of the payment of the counter claims is backed by funds made available under the emergency economic recovery act. so, mr. paulson, doesn't it make it your responsibility to know how those funds were used? >> i think you'll find, congressman congressmen, and i think the secretary reported this, that t.a.r.p. inv
, because it offers the best path toward a world with the united states is not always operating as an anti-terrorist robocop." guest: to have allies around the world combating terrorism makes a good deal of sense. that does not mean we turn our backs on the mission in afghanistan or iraq. i do not think the president has suggested that we do that. this is not a world we are choosing, but a world wto which we have to respond to the alternative is to lose, and if we lose, that would encourage those who would attack as everywhere around the world to keep it up. i think it is a multi-front approach -- i think a multi- front approaches appropriate, and the idea that we would train other countries to meet this threat around world makes a great deal of sense. we need to uncover pots before they unfold, but we need to -- and cover plots before they unfold, but we need to take the war to the enemy in other parts of the world, so that they cannot choose the time and place of the encounter bridge we need to -- so that they cannot choose the time and place of the encounter. yes, it does make sense for
